Words to remember

I had a lot on my mind this weekend as I sat down to watch LDS General Conference. Eight hours of inspired messages from the leaders of our church were good for my soul, even if my children were bouncing off the walls and I struggled to contain the madness from the couch. I scribbled a few paraphrased passages that particularly stuck out.

Testimony is knowing; conversion is doing.

One way to say, "I love you" is to say, "We can't afford that."

Covenants strengthen faith and give hope during dark times.

You are never lost when you can see the temple.

There is a difference between faithful, tithe-paying members
who occasionally rush through a session
and those who regularly worship in the temple.

We don't acquire eternal life at a sprint; this is a race of endurance.

The more we fill our minds with the messages of the risen Christ,
the more we will desire to follow Him.

Discipleship is not a spectator sport. Ours is not a secondhand religion.

I look forward to the May issue of the Ensign magazine so I can review all of these wonderful messages in print.
